    Coronavirus

    Oh, we are definitely assuming we have had COVID, for sure. We’ve also been wearing a mask everywhere in public and staying up to date on vaccinations since the beginning. Just another reminder of how quickly COVID can spread and how important it is to get vaccinated because, like us, you may...

    Coronavirus

    Thanks. I tried to account for differences in the tests. So, our negative rapid tests were from iHealth at-home, and Qiagen and Lucira RT-LAMP from my wife’s clinic. The PCR tests were done at two different locations: our usual medical office and the county test site. All negative so far.

    Coronavirus

    Interesting COVID case that happened to us this past week. It appears negative COVID test is possible even with high likelihood of infection. Saturday: our kids who are fully vaccinated (as well as us, parents) went to their swimming lesson. Since the lessons are either 2:1 or 1:1, the pool is...

    Am I the only one who feels Tesla service is spiraling down?

    It’s been in a downward spiral for a long time no matter how many times Tesla/Elon comes out and says it is something they’re working on. The more cars they produce and deliver, the worse the service experience had become because the service network just can’t grow fast enough along with the...

    Elon & Twitter

    Not buying it. So, then why not another party? Why the party that has literally worked against Tesla and sustainability?

    Tesla service requiring new tires to get service

    Yea, it’s unsafe to drive with 4/32 tread depth. Who knows when that tire will pop and explode while driving around the service center neighborhood where the max speed limit at any point is 30mph. In sunny 75 degree weather. So, you change your tires when it gets down to 6/32 or so? Lol.

    SF Bay Area Independent Tesla Repair

    Try Argonaut Garage in Berkeley or Luscious Garage in San Francisco. Not sure how technical those independent shops get into a Tesla but they do work on Teslas. This is a problem with buying from a “no dealership” brand.

    Tesla service requiring new tires to get service

    Do you see all that rain water on the tires (parked at the Tesla center when this picture taken)?

    Any option for parts runaround?

    Wow, that is horrible. Not sure what kind of advice I can give, but I hope you get it resolved. And, people who follow Tesla think the “no dealership” model is the future? Smh

    Tesla service requiring new tires to get service

    Anyone know what the Tesla policy is for getting service work done? I brought my car back in because of loud squeaking and creaking noises over every bump and steering wheel turn since a few weeks ago when Tesla changed out most of the front suspension components. However, this time, they...

    Why pay for PPF & ceramic coating when you can just repaint?

    Different strokes for different folks

    Why pay for PPF & ceramic coating when you can just repaint?

    Sure, if you buy the top of the line, most expensive models and trims that Tesla sells. Lol. This is the Model Y forum, sir. These cars cost almost a third of what you’re referring to.

    Good for Cathie. Would be in a worse position like me had she just stayed put this past week.

    Why pay for PPF & ceramic coating when you can just repaint?

    Full PPF + ceramic in my parts (much higher cost of living than nationally) cost about $10K on average when I called around. Even a full vinyl wrap is up near there. On a $60K car? Full stop, no thanks. I’ll live with some dings and scratches, especially on a car I won’t keep past 4-6 years.

    Coronavirus

    Still wearing masks everywhere we go for the benefit of my little one that isn’t eligible for a vaccine yet, the grandparents and great grandparents. Good thing my kids school has about 99% mask usage even with the mask mandate gone. (Private school. I’m reading on ND and FB that our public...

    Coronavirus

    Well, something new to discuss in the COVID world. What do you guys make of the recent headlines regarding severe hepatitis in kids with a fairly high death rate in those severe cases? Unfortunately, no confident link to anything in particular yet. CAH-C (covid associated hepatitis in children)?

    acceleration SHUDDER

    That is very dependent on the service center location, just like everything service related with Tesla. I know people who have been refused post warranty by two of the nearby centers close to mine for this issue. So, they got it repaired at a further location.

    acceleration SHUDDER

    Yup, Kyle from Out of Spec YouTube reviews just did a review of the new LR MX and the very first thing he did on the test drive was an acceleration test. And, won’t you know, the first thing he mentioned was the half shaft issue. Seems like Tesla isn’t bothering to correct the faulty design at...

    If it it's the links that Tesla service replaced, did they also do an alignment before returning the car back to you?

    Fore link suspension failure while driving on the freeway

    Would defective front left/right lower fore links cause sounds similar to the dreaded shudder during acceleration? I finally brought my car in thinking it was the usual shudder problem (after just leaving it as is for a long time), and Tesla is saying that the shudder noise is from defective...

    Coronavirus

    At least in my parts of California, even with the relaxing of mandates, I estimate that at least 2/3 of people are still wearing masks every time I go out for shopping and errands.

    Coronavirus

    CA has set a date for allowing schools to possibly not require masks. And, on that topic, wouldn’t expect anything less from Florida leadership. How about start with greeting the students rather than railing on them for wearing masks. Jeez.

    2021.24.28 Rolling out to MCU1/FSD MS/X

    No doubt. Tesla still won’t replace my faulty eMMC. They acknowledge that I have a problem (as I have to reset screen occasionally due to glitches), but have been telling me they don’t have the part available—since the recall began. They say don’t worry about it since I can still drive the car.

    Coronavirus

    Interesting. We received our 4 free fee gov tests immediately. But, Blue Shield made us do the old paper form mail-in-rebate for the at-home test reimbursement. Three weeks in, and they still have not updated our account to acknowledge that they have received our claim for reimbursement. And...

    Interesting. One of my brothers who’s in his early-30’s, healthy and no medical history, also had some chest tightness and heart palpitations for some time after second dose of Pfizer. Has been monitoring it, but he seems okay now. He’s been hesitant to get booster because of the experience as...

    Coronavirus

    Every time any friend or family from Asia (specifically, Korea, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong, Singapore) comes to visit us, there are two things that everyone always mention about food in the US: portion size is big, and everything tastes like it has too much salt.

    Coronavirus

    I have extended family living in Korea, Taiwan, and Singapore. They don’t have anywhere close to the situation with testing as here in the US, and those countries have metro areas that are more dense and highly populated than most, if not all, metro areas here.

    Coronavirus

    We’re at least two years into this pandemic. I can’t believe the testing situation is still exactly the same as it was in the beginning. Maybe even worse. In my larger metro region, there’s no place to buy or beg for rapid tests right now. People in my area are buying the rapid tests on...

    In my area, some nurses are making almost 2x that of experienced developers/programmers. Much more than GPs and FPs. Not a bad career.

    Obviously, more time needs to pass to know more about full spectrum of lab studies and clinical manifestations of omicron’s effect on vaccines. Here’s the in-vitro results from a study out of Germany (similar to what was done in SA). That drop.

    Article says that only the positive test individuals were put in isolation. I don’t know what the rules are for traveling to Netherlands right now. But, there should be mandatory quarantine on the rest of the passengers just as they do in parts of Asia. I’m certain some of the 90% testing...

    Most, if not all, insurances (at least in CA and MI) stopped paying for COVID related care long ago—regardless of vaccination status. The only thing free now is the actual COVID test if referred by a doctor, but then you need to pay the copay for the doctor’s referral. I do know, though, the...
